Harry Stephens, president/CEO and founder for Datamatx, an ACA International affiliate member based in Atlanta, was selected by U.S. Postal Service Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe to receive a lifetime achievement award for his commitment and success in serving the Greater Atlanta Postal Customer Council.
Donahoe recognized Stephens not only for his contributions as an executive board member to the Greater Atlanta Postal Customer Council, but for his continued and proactive involvement in postal reform and the key role he played in the “2nd ounce free” ruling for business mailers from the USPS earlier this year.
As an active advocate for business mailers across the country, Stephens is involved in several postal trade associations. In addition to the Greater Atlanta Postal Customer Council, he also serves as a member of the Major Mailers Association, PCC Advisory Committee, the Board of the National Postal Policy Council and The Imaging Network Group.
“It is an honor to be recognized by our postmaster general as a member of the Greater Atlanta Postal Customer Council, which was named the Postal Customer Council of the Year in 2011,” Stephens said. “This organization includes some of the top business mailers not only in the Atlanta area, but across the nation, and I’m proud to be counted among its members. It is often perceived that a lifetime achievement award means that one is finished with what they set out to accomplish. However, I believe that with a pending USPS public reform and several other ambitious endeavors coming up on the horizon, our work is not yet done when it comes to shaping the future of our U.S. Postal Service.”
